Several bow hunters hear an unusual loud scream while hunting elk
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Valley County
LOCATION DETAILS: Near Bruce Meadows (Highway 21 between Stanley and Lowman, off Bear Valley Rd.).
NEAREST ROAD: Bear Valley Rd
OBSERVED: (The witness was a student at Idaho State University in January 1997)
The individual and several companions were elk hunting (archery) in Sept. 1993 (1994?) in Valley Co., Idaho, near Bruce Meadows (Highway 21 between Stanley and Lowman, off Bear Valley Rd.). The elk were bugling when they heard a "monster-scream". He was particularly impressed by the tremendous volume, at what seemed to be a considerable distance across the valley. He said it was certainly not a cougar or an elk. He simulated what he heard for me -- roar to high-pitched trailing scream. He had since heard a scream on a sasquatch documentary that was similar. He said they had hunted in this area quite often and this was the first time they had ever heard anything like it. They didn't encounter anything unusual or hear anything further.
He struck me as very reasonable and credible and very interested in my impression and research.
